It’s been 40 years since U.S. Bicentennial coins found their way into the channels of commerce. Have you seen a 1776-1976 Bicentennial quarter in change lately? How about a Bicentennial half dollar or dollar? In this CoinWeek Podcast, we take a look at the steps undertaken by Congress and the U.S. Mint to make this coin program possible, talk about the designers behind the three coins, and how the U.S. Mint marketed the coins to collectors.

This program is based on an article written for CoinWeek by Joshua McMorrow-Hernandez. The full text of that article can be found here.
